If Zverev is concerned about work load he could have taken a few days off in September instead of participating in the money making vanity project that is the Laver Cup?
People on saying Novak is invincible. He recently lost a final. Those saying he is super fit forget the colds, flus, aches and pains he develops when he loses.Personally fed up with the "big 3" and Murray's pathetic clinging on by his fingernails like a doomed politician about to be axed.Surely tennis needs to look to the future now, and start to reinvent the Sport I loved as a teenager.

45.How come Djokovic doesn't look tired and fatigured like the others? He's 31 and Zverev is 21. I know which age I had more energy at! Djokovic has been getting to more finals too.
Djokovic is not even close to achieving what Federer has achieved.Those who say that Djokovic is better if he beats Federer fail to understand that Federer is 6 years older. They meet each other at different stages of their careers.
For a while Nadal looked unbeatable. He just seemed to be physically superior; could get everything back. Until Djokovic figured out a way to beat him; keep him moving side-to-side. And although the method is known to work only Djokovic can apply it successfully. The Serbian's certainly the best defensive player ever.
To me this is a tournament too far at the end of the year when all the players look tired & fatigued with little or no appetite to want to be there. Not fair on the spectators attending who are not getting value for money or entertainment. At the end of the day it just seems like a glorified exhibition event, I say scrap it now or this new Davis Cup event will be a disaster!
I can't see anyone beating Novak here. He's just too strong. The tide shifted in 2011, and Rafa, Roger, and Andy have all failed to get the better of him since. I think Novak will win all four slams next year. He's that good.
Different players play different tournaments, some more than others. The only way I see to base who the greatest might be is to work out personal percentages for example - grass court matches - 10 - won 5 lost 5 - 50% and so on.However I would substitute sets for matches and even points won!
@5 I donno if it's a compliment
Great for djokovic it's just a shame that the South African wonder kid Kyle Edmund isn't there as this looks like a good forehand court and he's been let down with playing recently on backhand courts which doesn't suit his style of play. No doubt he's watching from his tax haven in Bermuda!
